There are times when words don't flow so easily. When I feel that life has been so uneventful that I really don't have anything to say. But perhaps there is always something to say, even as mundane as life can be. Even on a Monday after an uneventful weekend. Even when forgot to take any new photos.
I woke to a misty grey morning. One that looks like it will bring needed rain. A relief after the relentless hot weather of the past week. Things have been far greener here lately, which is a very good thing for the old vegie patch and the grass. Not to mention those near empty water tanks. The temperature gauge tells me it is a fresh 14 degrees outside. Let's hope that rain holds off until I get those kids to school and back. It's a car free day today, and not by choice.
I've been trying to get up earlier lately. Getting up a little earlier I am able to pry myself off the littlest sleeping child, which is no easy feat, but somehow far easier at 6 than 7. I then have some breakfast, tidy, make a coffee and type a few things on the blog. Undisturbed child free time, when there is nothing I can hear but birds in the distance makes an earlier rise worth it. Even though I am not, and will never be a morning person.
Lunches are all packed in the fridge, and uniforms clean in cupboards. No doubt the start of another busy week. It feels like the holidays are a far distant thing already, and we are back in the predictable routine of school. The kids have settled right back in, and although things never stay the same, I know they are happy to be amongst their friends.
I guess there is a kind of comfort in the mundane afterall.
How was your weekend?
Is it raining where you are? A little greener than it has been?
Do you get up earlier for the peace and quiet?
